I would like to introduce myself. My name is William David Lee Peterson...
I would like to introduce myself. My name is William David Lee Peterson. I am currently employed as an Information Technology Specialist in Germany. My employer wanted to broaden my networking skill set to include Voice over IP, so I searched the internet for a training company. There were three criterions that I set for the training company of choice: (1) It has to be a quality training company (i.e. Cisco Learning Partner) (2) The training had to be completed in 1 month and (3) The price of the training must fall within my employer's budget.
After reading several positive forums, posts, blogs and internet articles, I chose Koenig Solutions. Koenig Solutions met all the three criterions. Since I have previously completed CCNA Voice on my own, I signed up for Koenig Solutions CCNP Voice Boot Camp (Regular Track).
My experience at Koenig Solutions in Goa was very good. The administrative staffs are very courteous and professional. The facilities are functional and clean. My teacher had an exceptional understanding of Cisco's VoIP concepts. He created a real-world topology, in which followed the curriculum, that we implemented using real Cisco devices (not the usual virtual device labs). This ensured that I obtained sound practical knowledge along with the theoretical knowledge. It was this knowledge that helped me to pass all 5 exams required for the Cisco Certified Network Professional Voice certification.
During my CCNP Voice boot camp I stayed at the budget Hotel Ginger located in Panjim, Goa. The service in this hotel was good. The room was functionally good but could have been cleaner. Remember, this is the budget hotel so just like the old saying goes, "You get what you pay for".
In the future, I would like to return to Koenig Solutions Goa for the Certified Ethical Hacker and CCNP Security Boot Camp to enhance my network security skills.
In conclusion, I recommend Koenig Solutions to any person looking for quality IT training (on par with US and European training companies) at a very affordable price that includes room and board.
